Masbate City

The City of Masbate is a blessed land, with its innumerable bounty and few blights. It is situated strategically in the center of the Philippine archipelago between latitudes 12º 14’ north 12º 29’ north and between 123º 30’ east and 123º 39’ east, on the northern side of the island of Masbate facing northeast towards Ticao Island.

The city domain is bounded on the northeast by Masbate Pass; on the southwest by the municipality of Milagros and on the northwest by a portion of Asid River and the municipalities of Milagros and Baleno.

From Manila, the city is barely 212.5 aerial miles or 362 nautical miles. By plane, it takes more or less one hour to negotiate; by boat, 16 to 18 hours to ply.

The city is more or less situated at the center of Masbate province, too, taking the tip of Burias Island as its northern most part and the tip of Esperanza municipality as the southern most part.

The city serves as the dividing line between Luzon and the rest of the islands in the country.

To the neighboring islands, Masbate City is three hours away by boat from the nearest point in Bicol mainland; three hours away from the nearest point in Burias; three hours away from the nearest municipality in Ticao Island; five hours from the nearest point in the island of Cebu and five hours from the nearest point in Panay island.
